    Errrrrr.....if it were the insurance companies complaining, wouldn't THEY bring the suit?

    At least they have standing, not like the GOP.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    LAW
    There are those on the left that believe in a Constitution and Rule of Law.....as well as a Democratic Republic. Of that you can be assured.
    No matter how many times you repeat this or highlight it doesn't mean it isn't lame.

    Ooooh a LIBERAL LAW PROFESSOR! Oooooooh!

    Good question.

    Moreover he was one who the left would look to go to take on Repubs. So definitely a difference than being represented from other attorneys from the Right or alleged Independent status.
    Did you know Obama was a constitutional law professor so he's an expert on constitutional law? And he's a liberal too! How about that!

    Looks like they will go with all they can do.


    Republican Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, who will serve as the new chairman for the House Homeland Security, warns Obama's action is a threat to American democracy and vows to use his new position to stop the "unconstitutional action."

    As chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, I will use every tool at my disposal to stop the president’s unconstitutional actions from being implemented.”.....snip~

    Considering it was a vote for congress and the senate and not the president, and it was the worst turn out in 70 years, I think most people just stayed home because they are fed up with our congress critters. Hardly any kind of mandate on the president.

    It still amazes me, frankly, that a country that was born out of the tyranny of a monarch so readily gave what seem to me regal powers to a single man/woman who happens to hold the Presidency.
    Oh brother quit with the dramatic. Obama really didn't do much of anything and not anywhere near what the right was expecting him to do. Did you even read the transcript to the speech?

    Isn't this dictator, emperor, king bull**** a riot.
    Too bad the President didn't keep his original word and do this before the end of summer.

    The GOPs like Cruz, Palin, Boehner, McConnell etc. would have lost their minds as they are now.
    And scared the American people ****less all the way to the polls in record numbers .

    Perhaps, but unless America wants an imperial Presidency sometime in the future, there has to be a line drawn somewhere to limit executive action.
